Odd Count Peyote

My mother is trying to make a beaded Turtle. The even and odd types of stitching in her book, by Design Originals, doesn’t show her how to do the stitches for uneven sides. (Different bead count in each line)

Sandra asks…

How to do a three drop peyote stitch, tubular- not flat?

My sister-in-law can’t find a site that shows it or anyone around that knows it!!!!

That’s what I do to- the odd count. But she has a fan that is similar to this, but tubular, and we can’t figure out how to get it started.
I mean, get it started so that it goes around rather than being flat. :)
Sorry, didn’t add in that if you check the link, you need to scroll down to view the three drop.

BeadGal answers:

These instructions teach you how to do tubular one drop peyote – I would try that first, then change it to three drop. You are going to do it just like the instructions, only substitute 3 beads for each one as you go around.
